OK, compared to all the amazing designers that are out there, I am an absolute novice but I've been having fun dabbling with what I can create in my Photoshop Elements program. I've done background pages and stuff like that in the past and even textured (very simple texture) cardstock but today I tried my first digital "elements" and made some brads. I was playing with some of the layer filters that are in PSE and came up with these slightly transparent brads and gave them a solid white center. The various effects I used make them look a bit puffy. I've already shared with one friend but figure, what the heck, put a link to them on my blog and see what happens.
I'm really hoping to take a class in CS2/3 or Illustrator via a university extension or community college class sometime soon. That would be fun - and I may even be able to make it work related (so that I can design history themed posters for my classroom) and get some of my costs covered. Wouldn't that be nice? But for now, I'm just going to dabble. Enjoy!
